Beauty on a Budget

NYC New York Color Cosmetics City Duet 2 in 1 Lipcolor Review, Swatches, Photos

NYC New York Color Cosmetics has a brand new selection of City Duet 2 in 1 Lipsticks. If you’re on a bit of a beauty budget brands like New York Color Cosmetics and Wet n Wild have definitely stepped up their game to bring you some rather great beauty purchases for $2-$3 or so.

City Duet 2 in 1 Lip Colors are a dual sided lipstick that has two shades of lip color in one stick. Interesting eh? Not innovative by any means as I’ve seen a few brands that have done similar lipsticks but fun none the less.

Worthy of a pick up?

Take a look!

Avon Ultra Color Rich White Gold Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

About a week or two ago I recommended some Avon Ultra Color Rich White Gold Lipstick for stuffing stockings with. At $2.99 these are a steal.

I happen to love the “gold” range that Avon has done in the past. 24K Gold, Rose Gold, and now White Gold. All the collections have proved excellent in my opinion.

Here’s a little review and swatches of the White Gold Lipstick Collection!
